Nucleic Acid Structure & Protein Synthesis Review Materials

Hey guys, so we have our test coming up tomorrow (Thursday for 2nd hour) and I wanted to post a few last minute resources for you to use. While we were playing our Kahoot review games today you should have been paying attention to what things were giving you trouble and what things you have nailed down. Most of you have Nucleotide structure down pretty well, but need to study up on Protein Synthesis (transcription and translation).

Here are the Resources:

  • Power points from class
  • Amoeba Sisters YouTube Playlist (We will NOT be covering DNA Replication, so don’t worry about that video. All of the others we watched in class.)
  • Don’t forget about your notes and handouts from class!!! Those will be very helpful! I suggest having them out when you watch the videos.

Reminder that the test is on THURSDAY =)

Email me with questions if you have them.

Missing Work

Hey guys, so many of you are missing a lot of formative homework assignments. You can still turn these in before the end of the Card Marking next Friday for partial credit. If you do not turn these in they will turn into 0’s and start hurting your grade.

Tomorrow we will review our evidence with our groups and make a final draft of our whiteboard posters and present our findings to the class. Monday we will refresh and knock the cobwebs off… Tuesday we test.
